Take advantage of a rare opportunity to stay right in Dock Square in a truly unique waterfront home. This quaint Maine cottage in the heart of Kennebunkport village is just steps from great shopping, cafes, gift shops, antiquing, fantastic dining, whale watching & sailing excursions. Perched literally over the Kennebunk River on wooden piers! You can't get any closer to the water. You can have morning coffee or evening cocktails and watch the boats navigate the Kennebunk River. Take an evening stroll into town and enjoy dinner at Bandaloop or a lobster roll at the famous Clam Shack then head to Ben and Jerry's for dessert. Everything is right at our doorstep! The Colony and Kennebunk Beaches are just over a mile down the road.

The Colony and Kennebunk Beaches are just over a mile down the road. Beautiful Cape Porpoise village is just 2 miles down route 9! During peak months, July, August, September, we have a 7 night minimum stay with a preferred change-over day on Friday. We feel a Friday check-in and check-out avoids the chaotic madness and traffic of the traditional Saturday change-over and gives guests a full weekend instead of two half weekends. *** PLEASE NOTE *** Fall 2017, our extensive 'make-over' is nearly completed! The entire first floor has been repainted and the antique pine floors have been refinished and stained. We've furnished the house with an eclectic blend of new and old. It is still a work in progress and the main floor isn't completely done yet. The two bedrooms on the second floor are soon to be completed with wall to wall sisal and wallpapered in a beautiful antique toile reproduction paper. We will continue to update the listing with new photos as the work progresses but we expect renovations to be completed by late November 2017 and will be taking reservations for 2018. More

This is our first visit and what a lovely place this is. The cottage is steps away from the cute little Kennebunkport 'downtown' and has a lovely view of the water. Our family has so enjoyed the set up of the cottage and the wonderful...More

Interaction with guests
I'm available by email or phone (once booking is made) to answer any questions about the cottage or the area. I'm happy to share my knowledge of and love for Kennebunkport and the Maine coast. I live about an hour away so interactions with guests is not typical. We have a key box at the house that guests can access easily.

How to get there
You can get here from there. Less than two hours from Boston, five hours from New York or just under six from Quebec and Montreal, the Kennebunks and Arundel are a short enough drive away for a long weekend (or longer!). Coming from farther away? You can get here by train (the Amtrak Downeaster stops just a few miles down the road), plane (the Portland Jetport is 30 minutes away, Boston’s Logan Airport is 90 minutes away, as is Manchester Airport in N.H.) and, of course, automobile.
